I had never heard of Sakarya, Turkey until today when I opened the 350 flickr account and discovered this photo…

Over 350 people had come together for the 15th Youth Council led by the Community Volunteers Foundation in Southwestern Turkey, and they formed this 350 both to carry forward the call for urgent action on climate change, and to unite with a truly global social movement.  Last October 24 was the identified as the most widespread day of political action in history — and the geographic spread and connectedness of this movement only continues to grow.  We look forward to working alongside the youth in Sakarya in transitioning our communities and our globe to the world below 350 ppm CO2.
